What did Elvis Presley and duo Jedward had in common? Besides their uber good looks, they also love to do their hair in a quiff. This hairstyle became popular during the 1950s until newer men’s haircuts overshadowed it. It came back in the 1980s, and since then, men don on the quiff regardless of the length of the hair. If you’re interested knowing how to do quiff hairstyles, then you need to follow these steps:
First – Trim your sides short and left your top longer. Then, create a pompadour look. A pompadour hairstyle became famous when it was sported by the mistress of Louis XV, Madame de Pompadour. It is characterized by having a huge wave on the front portion of the head.
To achieve the same look, use a comb and sweep the hair found on the front section to the back. You can use a pomade if you want to keep the shine and luster of the strands, making them appear still softer and smoother. An alternative is a hair spray to keep the big wave still.
Next – Pull the remaining hair. This is recommended for those who have shaggy or layered hair. The general rule is to never have hair strands going toward the face. All front hair should be pulled back. If you cannot hold them with additional pomade, you can add bobby pins.
Lastly – Add a roller and spray a strong-hold hairspray. Hot rollers may be utilized if you want to create more noticeable quiff. You can keep the quiff for around 10 to 15 minutes or until you are sure you have already formed the huge quiff.
The quiff is very difficult to achieve if you have cropped hair. However, you can manipulate the frontal fringes or bangs. You simply need to bring them up using a hold on gel. Again, make sure the face is completely free of any hair.
